What's the cure to my hypokalemic periodic paralysis and to my renal parenchymal disease?

What's the cure to my hypokalemic periodic paralysis and to my renal parenchymal disease?

No Cure: Hpp is a genetic disorder--there is no cure. The treatment for some patients is complex but for others taking potassium, beta blockers and additional meds before exercise/stress is all that is required. The renal disease may not be related. Typically patients with periodic paralysis do not have low potassiums between episodes which can cause kidney injury. See a kidney doc for answers. ...Read more

What is a cervical conization?

What is a cervical conization?

Remove precancerous: Cervical conization is a surgery to remove a section of the cervix when there are pre-cancerous cells. This can usually be done in the office, and recovery is not too uncomfortable. Extra repeat pap smears should still be done to make sure all pre-cancerous cells are gone and don't return. Can still have kids after, but cervix can be weak or scarred, so will need special attention when pregnant. ...Read more
